We’re doing an Accidental Dialogs at Summer Commune this Thursday! 
summercommune:

Come to Accidental Dialogs! This Thursday 7/31, 8pm at Plan 9, 213 N Walnut Street in Bloomington

We’re living in a time in which we’re regularly conversing with people we don’t know — that forty minute conversation with the customer service representative five-thousand miles away, or the errant email that arrived in your inbox, that you decided to respond to. That potential lover you communicated with because an algorithm suggested you should. New technology drives new forms of communication, and new artistic mediums are needed to showcase those artifacts. Accidental Dialogs: A Night of Stories From People You Might Know, Who Didn’t Know the People They Were Talking To showcases the best in these new anonymous conversations. 



UPDATE!!! Location tonight is Plan 9 location —- 120 East 6th St.

EVENT: Historical Fiction/Fictional History: A Conversation About Storytelling
Academic history writing can often be stale, discourse-laden and esoteric, and some of the best fiction writers avoid historical topics out of fear that they might be swept up in the politics of writing about the past. Meanwhile, the undeniable public appetite for books related to historical topics has been left to be satiated by journalists and political pundits who often write history to advance their own agendas.
This event aims to bring together writers of history with writers of fiction to discuss how we develop stories. We will address the following questions: What can historians learn from fiction writers about constructing historical narratives? What can fiction writers learn from historians about representation, authenticity and honoring the past? How can we make high-level history writing palatable and engaging for a variety of audiences? How can we inject high-level historical content into great fiction? 
We’ll start with a casual conversation over beers on Tuesday, July 29th, 5-7 pm at 615 N. Fairview Drive, with snacks and cold beers provided.
